Putting the Equality and Quality into Interpreting and Translation

What is legalised or apostilled translation?

“Legalised or Apostilled: Translations cannot be sealed with an Apostille stamp unless they carry a declaration endorsed by a Notary Public. This type of translation in general may not be a UK document, will bear the Apostille. The competent authority for issuing Apostilles in the UK is the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). An Apostille verifies the authenticity of the signature and ensures that the document is recognised in all States that signed the Hague Convention of 1961; it does not endorse the content of the document. For further information see http://www.apostille.org.uk/apostille-countries. If you require an apostille, please contact the Legalisation Office.
